Zaras marketing strategies

Zaras marketing strategy focuses on
product variety, speed-to-market, and
store location. It is also notable for
what it excludes. Zara does not
advertise in the traditional sense. If
you want to find out whats currently
available at the Zara stores you have
two options: go to the web site or go to
the store. Zara puts 10,000 different
items on the store shelves in a single
year. It can take a new style from
concept to store shelf in 10-14 days in
an industry where nine months is the
norm. In its primary European markets,
Zara locates its stores close together.

Location Important For ZARA

The manager of Zara says that:

These office buildings are full

of the people we want as
customers. We want them to
stop in at lunch or after work.
We want to see them often,
so we have to change what
we have on the shelves, said
Zaras Toronto store manager.
They could shop in a lot of
other stores, so we have to
make it worth their time to
come here.

Why does not Zara make an


why the company does not

advertise. If a Zara customer wants
to know what Zara has, he or she
must go to the store. The stock
changes often, with most items
staying on the shelf for only a
month, so the customer often finds
something new and appealing.
By the same token, if the customer
finds nothing to buy this visit, the
stores regular customers know that
tomorrow or next week new goods
will be on Zaras shelves. That
makes it worth another visit.

Price strategy

Zaras business model makes it more

profitable then any other retailer. We already
know from marketing that the retailer gets
almost half the price of the commodity sold.
So by playing both the role of the
manufacturer and the role of the retailer,
Zara is definitely much more profitable than
the average retailer with similar posted

Zaras pricing strategy is to set price equal to

cost plus a target margin. Zara prices are
based on comparables within the target
market, subject to covering costs plus a
target margin.

Store Atmospherics
Store Atmospherics is another
significant strategy for retailer.
Inside and outside of stores should be
attractive for consumers in order to
do shopping easily.

Zara focuses on store

atmospherics strategy. For instance;
it provides refreshing, warm,
hygineical stores.

Zaras competitors

Zaras strongest competitor is H&M.Zara has 1.02 million euros in

current assets. H&M however, has 3.40 million euros in current assets.
From this we can understand that Zara is less liquid, possibly because
they have more fixed assets and turn their inventory over quickly.

The most interesting of Zaras

competitors for comparison is Hennes
and Mauritz(H&M).H&M differs from
Zara becouse they outsource all of
their production,spend more
advertising and is price-oriented.

Key similarities for comparison

between Zara and H%M are that are
Europen based companies ,are
fashion forward at lower price retailers
and have a strong international
expansion strategy

General Evaluton
Zara, which contributes around 80 per cent group sales
concentrates on three winning formula to bake its fresh fashions:
Short Lead Time = More fashionable clothes
Lower quantities = Scarce supply
More styles = More choice, and more chances of hitting it right

All of the strategies and tecniks constitute Zaras

competetive advantages and makes the company
different between competitors.Zara shows us their
seriosness whit this slogan
Cool Clothes Now, Not Later
